Federal Disaster Loan Assistance Programs

In addition to traditional SBA funding programs, the CARES Act established several new temporary programs to address the COVID-19 outbreak. As a preferred SBA lender, Falcon National Bank can help you gain access to disaster funds and loan programs through the Small Business Administration (SBA).
